#4 Flyweight Jussier Formiga could be in line for a title shot if he gains a victory over #14 Sergio Pettis on the card.

Formiga has struggled against top fighters in the division, losing to Henry Cejudo, Joseph Benavidez and John Dodson. Sergio (14-2), the brother of Anthony Pettis, has also won four of his last five fights.
